Best place for dough to rise if house is cool?

I want to try my hand at that bread from that video JoeV posted (I think it was JoeV) - anyhow - it's almost cold in the house today. Where's the best place, in a cold house, for dough to rise?

What a great idea! If I ever figure out why I can't make bread down here, I know I will try that. Thanks!

On top of a TV. Turn on the TV.

Thanks guys for all the suggestions. I think even on top of the fridge will still be too cold. My fridge is what, 6+ feet high but my ceilings are 10 feet high. It's REALLY cold in my kitchen! The TV in the kitchen might be the best place or, the oven with a candle.

Do you have a microwave? Boil a cup of water in it, stick the dough bowl in quickly, leaving the hot water in the microwave. You can watch thru the window to see if the dough is rising well, and you may have to reboil the water at some point.

You can do the same thing in your regular oven, with a saucepan of water.

Or, just let your dough take its own sweet time in the cold--slow rising is better for flavor.
